I am a major in pure mathematics attending Columbia University. I have a lot of experience with all things math-related, and am fluent in all fields of high-school level and low-level undergraduate mathematics. I will be able to comfortably help anyone with any problems they are having in:

Algebra
Geometry
Precalculus/trigonometry
Calculus (single and multi-variable)
Linear Algebra
Set Theory/Logic

I have some experience tutoring in high school, and have been very successful explaining and helping students with material in the past.

About me:

I'm from a mid-sized town in central Illinois called Quincy. That's where I grew up, but now I am attending college in New York City, where I plan to stay most of the time.

I'm very into mathematics, which is why my level of experience with higher-level college subjects is so high compared to most of my peers. That is, a lot of this stuff I had already taught to myself before taking the class. I really enjoy learning about math, doing math, and of course, teaching and helping others with math.

Outside of class, I have a lot of hobbies, including but not limited to reading (I am predisposed to fantasy and classic fiction), cooking, riding my bike around the city, playing the piano (a lot of improvisation and composition), and doing stand-up comedy. On campus, I am involved with a few clubs, most notably the math and philosophy groups, and I also edit and write for the university philosophy publication, and will be involved in an a Capella group.

Although they are not with me at school, I have seven cats at home. Indeed, I'm a huge fan of cats and all things cat-related, and could talk for hours about them.

Most of all, I just love being chill and not letting myself become too stressed out about life. I believe that the more one worries about achieving a preset and predefined goal of "success," typically that which society enforces, the less likely he is to ever find happiness. Ultimately, happiness is what I'm looking for, so I just want to take things easy, follow where life leads me, and us what I already know about how to attain happiness in order to get there.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I got a 36 on the math portion every time I took the ACT, which was multiple times. I am very familiar with the types of questions asked, and good strategies in answering them.

Algebra 1

I have been working with algebra for years, and doing it so much for so many mathematical applications, both abstract and applied, has made it completely instinctual and perfectly understandable. I also have a strong understanding of the theory behind it, and will be able to describe why everything is working the way it is.

Calculus

I have been doing calculus for over three years now, and have been learning and relearning the material so much that it's basically an instinct now. Everything from basic single variable limits, sequences and series, differentiation and integration up to theoretical vector and real analysis I have experience with. Moreover, learning the material so many times, and being given so many different intuitions behind integration and differentiation, I am able to apply the best of what I have learned to provide the clearest possible explanations behind the often-tricky concepts underlying these theories. I am fluent in both single-variable and multi-variable calculus, and have strong experience in both theoretical and computational approaches to either.

Geometry

My geometric intuition has always been very strong. Since learning the subject, and even while learning the subject, the concepts were always completely clear and intuitive to me. I have a good understanding of classical Euclidean geometry, and can effortlessly apply formulas where needed, and be able to explain where and why certain formulas and theorems work.

Linear Algebra

I have taken or learned linear algebra in its entirety a total of three times. The first two times being more focused on applied and computational approaches, and the third time a more theoretical approach in an honors math class in college wherein the entire class was proof-based and conceptual. I have a strong working knowledge of both computational and theoretical linear algebra, and these two approaches work to complement each other when I can clarify concepts and the reasoning behind computation. Since this has been so recent, my knowledge is especially strong.

SAT Math

As with the ACT, I have taken the SAT multiple times, and have scored perfectly or near-perfectly every time I've taken it. I am very familiar with the format of the test and the types of questions asked, and will be able to help anyone and answer any questions regarding the math portion of the test.

Statistics

I took AP Statistics in high school, and without any trouble, easily scored a 5 on the test. I still remember a lot of the material, and will be able to help anyone out if he or she is having trouble understanding concepts or how to apply the statistical tools that have been taught.
